Introduce Your Children to the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Straight from Scripture!
September 15th is the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows and to help make this day more meaningful to young Catholics; we offer an F3 Piece on the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This activity is a wonderful go-along activity for any Faith notebooking project, CCD or Religious Education class or feast day celebration.
In order to complete this F3 (Flip, Flap, & Fold) piece, children will need to prepare the pieces, look up some scripture passages, and match the religious images to the passages and titles. It is easy to complete and requires scissors, glue, our file, and a Bible. Older learners could complete this project on their own taking about thirty minutes or so, but it is a nice family activity as well. This is a great way to practice using the using the Bible while finding concrete examples of our Catholic traditions in our Lord's Word.
Please note: This is an updated version of the original black-and-white version posted some time ago. Color images and a clean font are used in this resource. The black-and-white version of Our Lady of Sorrows F3 Piece is still available as well.
